“hotel nice but little difficult to walk uptil there”
Reviewed 9 September 2007

Hotel location gives a beautiful scenery of the beautiful place and we were lucky to get a view of Matterhorn from our room balcony too. But we found it little hard to reach to the hotel on foot with the luggage and a small child. It is advisable to call up the hotel from the station for a pick up.

  • Liked — View from the room balcony
  • Disliked — Its a steep walk to reach the hotel, difficult for old people and children .

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Bella Vista. We had an terrific view of the Matterhorn. The room was very nice, the bed was comfy, and everything about the hotel helped us feel more relaxed and comfortable. The family that runs the place is also very nice, which adds to the experience of staying there. I would like to return to Zermatt one day and I would definitely look forward to my stay at the Hotel Bella Vista while I was there.

  • Liked — The family atmosphere, the family who owned the hotel really cared about the guests.
  • Disliked — That I can't live there all year!

As per other reviews, we had a great time at the Bella Vista Hotel. It is 5 mins up a hill from the main street, which means you get a fantastic views of the Matterhorn from the hotel terrace. The hotel is exactly how I imagined a typical Swiss chalet, wood, flowers, cosy rooms, fireplace etc. Breakfast was first class too.
Zermatt is a great place, if you want to avoid the crowds I recommend the Hohbalm hike. First 3 hours are hard, 1000m uphill hike, but the views from the top are fantastic. No lifts on that side also mean you have the whole mountain to yourself.

This is a family run hotel that is wonderful. Franz and Bernadette do a great job. They are very helpful. The hotel is also their home and it reflects careful attention to detail. The rooms and hotel were nicely decorated. Bella Vista was the best hotel we stayed in during our trip.

This is a great hotel! We had a large family room for 2 adults and a toddler. It was spacious, spotless, and comfortable. Views were amazing and the owners helpful and friendly. The breakfast was superb. I would definitely return.

Of all the places we stayed in on our trip round Switzerland this was by far the best.
Zermatt is nestled in the valley at the bottom of the Matterhorn and is extremely clean, quiet and exactly what I had dreamed a swiss apline village would be.
The hotel Bella Vista isn't right in the middle of the town, it's just a little further up one of the hills. However this enabled great views over the village and to the Matterhorn.
The hotel owners were very friendly and the room very comfortable.
Zermatt is a car free city, and so we arrived by train. We called the hotel from the station and they came out in their electric cart to collect us. They were even expecting us when we arrived!
The breakfast was good; we really didn't want to leave.

Family room was a great price and a wonderful floorplan. Master bedroom on one side of the suite and kid's bedroom on the others. Suite also included large bathroom, sitting area and deck with a few of the Matterhorn. There was also a playroom for children in the basement that included table tennis and stocked with nice toys. A few drawbacks, the pool was not located at the hotel, it was a few blocks away. Also if travelling with very small children or any physical disabilites, the hotel is on a hill and as cars are not allowed in Zermatt, be prepared to walk. The hotel does have a cart and will provide shuttle service for you and your luggage from the train station
